Recorded in 1982 by Whitesnake- and it wasn’t a hit until it was re-recorded 5 years later. Hard to believe this was a #1 hit. One of the worst concerts I’ve ever been to- the girl I was seeing at the time wanted to see them so- I bought the tickets and we went- it was bloody awful. Certainly not the worst concert I’ve been to that honor goes to another concert I didn’t want to go to- Kenny G- [Michael Bolton’s younger brother] a couple years later. At least it was G by himself and not on the infamous ‘Brothers’ Tour he did with Michael.
